Really nice, laid back event . Nice route with some lovely views and a good medal. Just a couple of suggestions for next year, it would be good to put some additional tape in trees where the arrow markings could be confusing just to avoid anyone going the wrong way. Marshals on water stations would be good if possible and a separate Canicross start would also be really good just to avoid any accidents at the start . Oh and an extra porta loo if there is space too😊

Wonderful race - only thing I'd change is to let the Cannicross go off 10 mins before or after the main race. The first mile was nearly carnage there were so many excited dogs on leads.

Nor me directly, but some runners said they got lost near the trig point. Maybe additional signage or a marshal up there?Generally a tough course but very scenic/enjoyable.

Was great and the email communication prior to it was good. Unfortunately like alot of runners today, I got a bit lost due to inadequate sinage in one place. No marshals at water stations was a surprise for me, never experienced that in a race. But overall a good race and good value. Thanks Adrian
